Since this is a 7 note chord it can not be done on a 6 string. Most will omit the 11. From the root you are using,3rd fret A string, this would be the one I would use... ``` e----5--- B----3--- G----3--- D----2--- A----3--- E-------- ``` 1 3 b7 9 13 (NO 5th) Mixolydian plays well over this You may find THIS interesting ;)

I let those guys hold down the bass notes and I will play just the higher strings just to fill in. A13= ``` --7 --7 --6 --5 --- --- ``` 7 3 13 9 or for a full sound ``` --5 --7 --3 --5 --7 --5 ``` 1 5 7 3 13 5 (NO 9) And yes all of the forms above could be used.
